Northern Soul Classics - Homer Banks - A Lot of Love/60 Minutes of Your Love

This is the first record I bought. I bought it from an old friend Trevor Harley who I began work with. I'm inlcuding both sides because both are equally good, and always go together. Homer Banks was primarily a song writer for Stax, but as the discography says also one hell of a singer. "A lot of Love", was one of the songs he wrote, and was also covered a few years ago by Mick Hucknall.

60 Minutes of Your Love is in the same vein. Not one of the more uptempo Northern Sounds, but distinctively a Northern foot stomper that conveys all the gritty soulful, brassy sounds of the genre.
